The Movies Made Me Do It REVIEWS "Honey, I’m Home"

For the Subject, I was going to type in "The Movies Made Me Do It REVIEWS Honey, I'm Home AGAIN!!!" which would be more appropriate since we have already received one review from Chad Connolly of MvMMDI.

Wanted to give you a little backstory on how this latest review came about. I received an email out of the blue from Chad's partner at, Tristan Wright. As I do sometimes in these news updates, here is an excerpt of what Tristan wrote me,

"Mr. Branin,

I am currently a reviewer for the website Chad Connolly suggested your movie, "Honey, I'm Home" to me after one of our many conversations about independent film"

How amazing! It's a dream scenario for someone like me who is doing all he can to gain exposure and have his work seen. Of course I didn't let the opportunity slip away and was glad to send Tristan a copy of "Honey, I'm Home" to review. Even took it a step further by sending him a copy of my previous film, "Shoot-Out" He loved both, giving both films 8/10 scores.

With that, here is the link to the review

Honey, I’m Home Added to IMDB

Our little movie is now official!

Here is the new profile on the Internet Movie Database

Honey, I'm Home IMDB Link

When I decided to make "Honey, I'm Home" the main goal was simply to achieve what I am reporting here about getting this film on IMDB.  Yet the film has been received so well, that I had to adjust my goals.  Critics have been quite generous in their praise of the film and it already has an Audience Choice Award while it's list of Official Selections grow.

For now, check out the IMDB page and stay tuned for the latest news and upcoming festival screenings.  Hoping to bring "Honey, I'm Home" to a city near you and soon.

True Hollywood Talk - Video Interview with Filmmaker David Branin

If you have been following our blog news for a while, you probably remember me mentioning during our post HollyShorts Film Festival news that I was interviewed by three different outlets. The first of those interviews has now made it's way online.

Really want to thank Steven Buchsbaum from for this interview. His work ethic and passion is quite admirable. He has started True Hollywood Talk through his own determination, showing his love for the film business. His support of the film community especially the indie film community is phenomenal. He updates his video interviews constantly giving us all great content which also includes Hollywood news and a classified section.

As I type this, my interview is featured on the front page of which is tremendous exposure. Hurry up and try and check it out as soon as you can to see if you can catch it on the homepage.

I was a little nervous during this interview, so I wasn't on top of my game as much as I would like to be. Very glad to have done the interview though and looking forward to sharing it with you. Would love to have your comments. I thought I did fairly well.

Here is the direct link to the interview in case it's time on the homepage has elapsed.

Filmmaker David Branin interviewed by Short End Magazine

In a follow up to the HollyShorts Film Festival, I was contacted by Noralil Ryan Fores from Short End Magazine for an interview. What a blessing it is to have an interview done by a true professional such as Noralil.

She has done an excellent job piecing together this interview we conducted several weeks ago. Now you have a chance to benefit from her work and learn a little more about me.

I just want to point out to you how quickly things can change. When I was talking to Noralil, I was gearing up to make my short film, "R E F R A G M E N T E D" It is a very strong piece of writing and a film I still hope to make in the near future. Yet, since this interview I have come up with a new Feature Film idea that is coming on so fast that it is now taken precendence over all other projects which include my other planned feature film. It is an idea so fertile that it makes me wish I was going into production today on it.

Sorry, more to come on that project soon.

Here is my interview with Noralil.

Utopia Film Festival - Official Selection for "Honey, I'm Home"

"Honey, I'm Home" is an official selection to this year's Utopia Film Festival. This will be a DC-area Premiere for David Branin's short film on infidelity.

We are extremely thrilled with this selection. After being accepted into our first four film festivals and winning one Audience Choice Award, we were turned down by three straight film festivals so it feels great to have this upcoming East Coast Screening.

"Honey, I'm Home" screens Saturday, October 27 at 2:00 pm at the Greenbelt Community Center Multipurpose Room in Greenbelt, Maryland.
